Primary Award Account Indicator Added to Accounts

Sent to the AFS-Update Mailing List on Oct. 3, 2019

A new indicator field was added to all accounts in the Kuali Financial System (KFS) this past weekend. The new “Primary Award Account Indicator” field is located in the Accounting Systems tab when copying or editing accounts. While it is visible on all accounts, it is used for contracts & grants reporting purposes only. It generally can be disregarded by most financial system users. Reports of issues with the new indicator have also been resolved.

No action is required from campus fiscal officers as the result of the addition of the Primary Award Account Indicator. If you have any further questions, please contact the KFS Help Desk at or 949-824-7001.
